Another excellent plot, this time set largely on the Isle of Wight in many locations I know personally which added to the interest. As always the Police procedural detail seems highly accurate and authentic and all the characters well drawn and believable. There are two major plot-lines being pursued separately by Joe Faraday, a washed up headless corpse and Paul Winter, a cocaine and vice ring, which appear to be intersecting. Highly skilled plotting keeps you turning the pages until the very end. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752878018, Paperback)

The discovery of a headless corpse in the sea beneath the cliffs is a grim beginning for Detective Inspector Joe Farraday's latest investigation on the Isle of Wight. Identifying the body proves impossible, but the disappearance of a young delivery driver who's fallen foul of a local nursing-home owner—an ex-soldier with a violent temper—gives the team an important lead. Meanwhile, Detective Constable Winter's life lurches from crisis to crisis as he becomes involved with a beautiful young prostitute at the center of an investigation of a powerful local businessman. Winter's problems are further compounded by a series of vicious and debilitating migraines, the implications of which are alarming. For Winter, it's beginning to look as if time is running out…The sixth novel in this highly praised series of police procedurals—and the best yet.
